As for the new shows, oh boy, are there some surprises – Fredrik Eklund and Bethenny Frankel teaming up to scout, buy, and design amazing properties, Shep Rose looking for love, Ryan Serhant training sales agents and showing off his skills, and more. Check out the list of new shows below.
The contradiction that is Phaedra makes for interesting, albeit frustrating TV. I heard that Phaedra had an extremely tough time at the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but I haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary so far. My expectations are unreasonably high, but I am waiting for some major truth bombs to be unleashed, or at the very least, some lies to be exposed. I am so ready for parts three and four.
I feel like it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives reunion if one cast member didn’t pull the “bully” card for virtually no reason. After a season of pot stirring, rumor spreading, and straight up lying, Porsha Williams became the latest person to do this on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. To be honest it seemed like a last ditch effort to deflect from all of the trouble she got into this season.
Cynthia Bailey was obviously offended by Porsha’s bullying accusations. But then again the reunion could have been way worse for Cynthia. The other cast members are definitely struggling a lot more. Speaking of the struggle, pretty much everyone felt for Sheree Whitfield when she opened up about the abuse from Bob Whitfield. I still don’t get why she was not sympathetic toward Kenya Moore, but I guess that’s a slightly different situation.
I don’t know about you, but I was so happy to have Sheree Whitfield back as a full-time cast member this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The bone collector was the one who kept the story lines going and I was grateful for that. I’m also happy that Chateau Sheree is finally done (allegedly) because yes, I’m happy for Sheree, but I’m also happy that the viewers won’t have to hear about baseboards and furniture shopping for another season.
Even though I’m in the minority of people who think Kenya Moore is hilarious, I love it when Sheree comes for her. I’m in that even smaller minority of viewers that are both Kenya and Sheree fans. Sheree shared her thoughts on Kenya’s random argument with Kim Zolciak during the finale and she teased some EPIC drama from the RHOA reunion.
Before the scary weekend spent in the hospital with her son, Kim Zolciak was a guest on The Real, which aired today. Kim sets the record straight on the rumors of daughter Brielle Biermann getting butt implants and also addresses her return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta – it’s not a done deal just yet, despite reports stating otherwise! She also shares what we can expect this season on Don’t Be Tardy – she teases there’s something big going on!
On returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim explains, “I’m in talks, but I don’t want to come back full time. I have Don’t Be Tardy, so why would I want to do that? I would do both.” She explains that full time would mean “the whole season, reunion. No.”
When asked if she’d like to just do guest appearances here and there, she says, “a few of them. Listen, they pay, so…. I got six kids to feed, honey. I’m not dumb.”
What can be said about the Real Housewives Of Atlanta reunion except that everyone hates each other? In Part 2, Andy Cohen put on his “compassion” mask, to make faces more concerned than usual, because the main topic was relationships. And on this show ain’t none of them going well!
My favorite thing was learning that Phaedra’s middle name is “Creonta!” GIRL, hi! Actually Girl HEEEELLLLOOO! What a name?! And then Phaedra names her sons Dylan and Ayden – like the two most normal little boy names ever? HA.
I was pretty excited to hear the news that Kim Zolciak will make an official return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, so I was looking forward to her Watch What Happens Live appearance- especially after her season finale confrontation with Kenya Moore. I wanted to see Kim reading Kenya and dodging questions from Andy Cohen about whether or not she got a nose job, but unfortunately Kim will not be on the episode tonight.
I don’t blame her though, Kim has a very legitimate reason for skipping this public appearance. Her son Kash was bitten by a dog and he had to go to the hospital.
It could have been a difficult year for Cynthia Bailey on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she definitely had the easiest season out of everyone in the cast. She had the most graceful divorce in Real Housewives history. She turned fifty and looks better than ever (which I didn’t think was possible). Plus, she’s on pretty good terms with the rest of the cast.
Of course, she wasn’t the most interesting person to watch on the show, but she did provide some balance to the crazy antics. Plus, it is entertaining to see her make this “friends” thing work with Peter Thomas. It’s unusual, but they get along better now than they were before they split. So I don’t blame Andy Cohen for asking about their interaction multiple times during the reunion.
